Bairrista :D
Why Bairrista? :D Orlando (Bellini's partner in 58, I looked it up afterwards) played with Bellini at Vasco. And in 82 neither of the centrebacks played in Rio... so how does a momentary lapse of memory make me bairrista?

Jeez, you forget the name of ONE Atletico-MG player and suddenly it's a conspiracy from the Rio-SP axis.

I Don't remember the names of #2, #4 and #5.

The other NTs are easy.

I got 41 out of 44. Missed two from the 1958 squad and one from the 1982 squad. Not bad for a young Italian :smileani:

43/44

For some reason I kept writing Marinho Santos @ 27, untill I googled it...

To be fair, my pops helped with the upper collumn for 58' (the bottom row is easy), a bit of trial and error with the 82' - but no help needed in the end...

And yes, before someone asks.. I am a geek who collects Panini stickers and plays Pro Evo religiously - I could do the benches too probably :pp

To help recognize the 1958/1962 teams, here's a classic poster from back then:


Sadly some of the reserves' names are unreadable, but you can read most of them. The guys in suits at the end are the technical staff.

And even more interesting, here's a sheet of Brasil's squad in the unfortunate 1966 WC, autographed by the whole squad... veterans like Gilmar, Djalma Santos, Zito and Garrincha mixed with upcoming young stars like Jairzinho, Gerson and Tostão, all this plus Pele - but with no organization or plan to turn this roster into a team. :(
